About this recipe: These are a little spicy - if serving to young kids, you can leave out the dried crushed chillies and black pepper. The wheatgerm makes a nice crunchy coating.

Altered ingredient amounts. this was a good recipe, but was not kid freindly. If you would like it kid freindly delete the chillies and half the black pepper. They tasted great. So enjoy. - 18 Jul 2008

Altered ingredient amounts. I didn't use the wheatgerm and I used wholemeal bredcrumbs. Enjoy them. - 16 Dec 2009

really great and simple recipe to make. I'd not made these before. They were crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. - 16 Dec 2009
